Volkswagen Polo (Mk5 2013)

Volkswagen Polo Red

5 Pros

  1. Terrific dynamics are one of the main reasons the Volkswagen Polo has won the Drive car of the year award for this segment three years in a row
  2. The 77TSI engine provides excellent fuel efficiency and performance
  3. 5 out of 5 star safety
  4. Nice interior with heaps of space
  5. Volkswagen badge prestige, perfect for that inner snob

5 Cons

  1. Built in South Africa. Previous Volkswagen’s built here had a very poor reliability record and in Australia VW is known for high service costs
  2. The diesel is slow and the 1.4L engine is significantly underpowered
  3. Requires premium unleaded
  4. The base model is a bit stingy on equipment with no cruise control and antiquated drum brakes on the rear
  5. The automatic DSG gearbox can be a quite jerky to use in town

Concluding personality type: Purebred dog: Looks the part, but health problems remain a concern
